Maths, Chemistry and Biology tutor. I have recently graduated from the University of St Andrews with a BSc Honours in Medicine, and I am currently undertaking my final 3 years of medical school at the University of Glasgow to complete my MBChB. At school I studied Biology, Chemistry, Maths, Physics, English, and French at National 5 and Higher level. I also studied Biology, Chemistry and Physics at Advanced Higher.

I have previously tutored Maths and English at Kumon which enabled me to gain valuable experience explaining numerous concepts in a variety of ways to students. I have also been involved in mentoring younger year medical students throughout my time at the University of St Andrews. These have both enhanced my tutoring skills allowing me to plan individualised lessons to suit the student. I have experience in explaining areas of difficulty in an easy-to-understand way as well working on exam techniques.

My lessons will be structured and tailored to each student to allow as much interaction as possible as I think this is key to aiding understanding and making lessons enjoyable. To begin with, I believe it is important to identify each student’s academic goals and any areas of weakness or difficulty to focus on in lessons. This allows me to plan accordingly so the student can get the most out of lessons to consolidate their knowledge and to feel confident and happy! I would start by outlining objectives for each lesson so the student has a goal to complete and can self-assess to track their learning. My tutoring sessions will also involve worked examples and opportunities for the student to try questions. This allows the student to consolidate their knowledge, as well as working on their exam technique. During my years at school and university, I found that past paper questions and exam techniques are key to success.
